Got it! I think! More doable than the past few weeks IMO, and a really interesting grid.

Indeed interesting to see a grid of these dimensions. Hey, it works just fine for this puzzle. I've checked my answer against the helpful list above (thanks, hashbrown), and I'll soon submit.

I really liked this one.

I am not sure I would have gotten this without "the list". That really made the click for me. I had a couple of other answers that seemed to work, but they were not on the list.

Sometimes Mr. G is too comprehensive. You can find almost anything you want if you are willing to consider the obscure, and in one case here, x-rated!

Got it. Finally and with a nudge.

Not sure what you mean here but for the record I'm Mr. W.

I was referring to "Google". Something rather blue popped up in one of my information searches. I could not explain further without risking a spoiler.

Enjoyed the grid & meta.

So many puzzles this week. I think I'm down to "Just Desserts."

Didn't get this one immediately, and decided to give it another shot since he hasn't sent one out in a while. Anyway, got it. Tough grid for me. I'm definitely missing PGWs puzzles!

Nice reference to the "other metas" on our forum (including a link here) from PGW on the writeup of his last -- sorry, "latest" -- puzzle.

Yes, I hope PGWCC returns. I like that many of the puzzles seem ... experimental. Like Peter G. is eager to try new meta things.
